So, as you all know, we, the wiki, recently celebrated our tenth birthday. Now most of the initial hype has died down, though a couple of us admins felt more had to be done to commemorate this.
I'd like to start off by giving a couple high points from our history.
- The wiki was founded on 31 January, 2008 by Pyro Python to serve as the most comprehensive library on HTF as a whole.
- On March 5th, 2012, CoinsCP adopted the wiki after it was abandoned for a great while.
- 5 days later, Lord O' Darkness was promoted to Rollback, this would kick off his many years of devoted service as Sysop, during which he reached full bureaucrat rights.
- By September of 2015, AdamISAWESOME, SaenihpNnylf and Sandgar, under head bureaucrat Yong feng made up the most memorable management team in wiki history, keeping the community active and on its toes even during the massive hiatus. Sadly they would not serve long enough to see the hiatus broken.
- By March 26th, 2017, the wiki had elected its current admin team, currently one of the longest standing teams in wiki history. Beaten only by the devoted team of fans who initially built the wiki.
- On January 31st, 2018, the wiki celebrated its 10th anniversary. The Happy Tree Friends wiki has been standing almost as long as the Wikia namebrand
I've been here to see some of the greatest and worst times on this wiki. I went from helping design most of the emotes in our old chatroom, to running a chatbot to help control activity, to nearly disappearing from the wiki altogether. I am elated to see it becoming a sprawling hub for fans again, and hope to see it stand for many more years.
As special commemoration, the wiki will be receiving a new 10th-anniversary wordmark, and this thread will be linked on the wiki main page for all to see.
Next I'd like to thank the loyal admin team who work every day to keep this wiki safe and well maintained every day.
And most importantly, thank you, the users. Without you, we wouldn't be here.
